Hedge Fund Launches Rise & Liquidations Drop

The hedge fund industry is flush with money compared to last year, leading to many new hedge fund startups. While it was very difficult to raise the capital for new funds during 2008, an estimated $2 billion has been raised for 8 new hedge funds. Hedge funds are also trying to accommodate investors with fewer multi-year lock-up periods, lower fees and cash redemptions.

The number of hedge fund liquidations is falling significantly by about 50%. Hedge fund researcher Kenneth Heinz says that the rise in new hedge funds and the drop in liquidations this year is consistent with investors' increasing appetite for risk after a historic low in the industry. 200 of the 376 liquidations were fund-of-funds showing a consolidation in the industry.
